}}} it looks like there are 2 problems. first i guess there is a problem in dojo._fixIeBiDiScrollLeft, at the following line: {{{ return scrollLeft + de.clientWidth - de.scrollWidth; }}} replacment of ""de.scrollWidth"" with ""16"" (my scrollbar width) fix it: {{{ return scrollLeft + de.clientWidth - 16; }}} but, there is still another problem, when we have horizontal scrollbar. it dose not take the horizontal offset into account. BTW: dojo._isBodyLtr() assumes that the direction is never changed. i guess it has been done in such a way for performance reason... anyway, in the attached example, there are buttons to switch between RTL and LTR directions, so there is a workaround for this issue.",defect,closed,high,1.4,HTML,1.0,fixed,bidi,hwcdl@…,,
